Bourton on the Water Attractions

There is a lot to see in Bourton on the Water in the Cotswolds, even though the town of Bourton is such a small place. Prime among Bourton's attractions are the many picturesque, stone bridges spanning the River Windrush, which have earned the Gloucestershire beauty spot the title of "Venice of the Cotswolds."
